Step 1

Wear tops whose details pull the eye down vertically; V-necks are a good choice.

Step 2

Tuck shirts into pants to make your legs look longer, which will make you look taller.

Step 3

Opt for clothes that fit close to your body. Bulky ones - like oversized jackets and tops - will draw the eyes out horizontally.

Step 4

Try slim pants that closely follow your thighs and butt to make you look taller.

Step 5

Wear vertical stripes - for instance, a pinstripe suit.

Step 6

Don short skirts, avoiding skirts that cut slightly below the knee or at mid-calf.

Step 7

Slip into higher-heeled shoes. Letting your cuffless pant legs drape over high shoes will provide an instant look of height.
